Firefox wont open some site pages

On my family (second) computer I cannot open some pages within a site eg My Posts in PCA and others elsewhere but there is no problem with other machines - this one for example. Clearly, it has something to do with the machine (runs XP). the machine I am writing this on has W 7. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox (19.02) & updated plug-ins, all to no effect. Help!!

Same thing happens in other browsers _ Chrome & I E. Enable Javascript Advanced uncheck all items makes no difference. The window which wont load is Javascript:_doPostBack( and the a string )

Check your security settings with the other PC as follows:

It may also be worth checking other browser settings with the PC that works.

Had a good look around the net but nothing jumps out.

May also be a firewall or registry issue given that its affecting all browsers.

Long shot - but is the time and date on the pc, that cannot open some sites, correct?

JavaScript was & is enabled. I notice that on the browser that works, there are many blocked sites but on the firefox that doesn't, there are none - significant?

Time and date are correct.

There's a whole host of things to try here many of which you have tried already, they relate to IE but if you can crack that one the rest should be easy.

Are you using a different firewall on the second PC?

Found this in an Apple forum (I know, I should be ashamed of myself). Its identical to the problem you are having and quite a long thread but a few ideas nonetheless.

In options - tabs - which boxes do you have ticked? Are they the same as on other PC's?
